Please note that at the request of a member of the Anglican Communion Office this photo is being removed–KSH.
You can now see material related to this meeting here (see “Primates Meeting 2011” on the top left) and there.
Almost as many organizers as Primates. Very odd.
Well — at least we can be confident that the money for “event organization” is being well spent. Fifteen “organisers” for a meeting of 24 or so people.
Is the ACNS, the ACO, or the ACC going to enlighten us about who these “organizers” are, who paid their salaries, and what their instructions were?
Two words spring to mind when viewing this picture: motley & crew.

15/24 = 0.625. That would be roughly 2/3 of an organizer per primate.
I believe, under the Healthcare Reform Act of late notoriety, that might qualify as full-time nursing care.

Go to http://www.standfirminfaith.com/?/sf/page/27192/ for a copy of the webpage with photos. Why might the ACO want this information mem-holed?
Could it possibly be that they want it sent down the “memory hole” because they suddenly realized that Mr. Blair (Eric, not Tony) predicted such behavior would occur about 27 years earlier than it did* and they wanted no one to realize that they were that far behind the times?

*â€”If any reader doesn’t recognize the referencem, subtract 27 from the four digits representing the current year. If you still don’t recognize it, I would humbly suggest Googling [i]Eric Blair[/i].
